Full Story Line for The Fugitive
A former Ponderosa foreman named Will Reagan arrives at the Ponderosa to make a request. He asks Ben and Adam to read him a letter that he believes came from his son, Carl Reagan. Ben opened the envelope to find a letter and a ring, then told Will it was some form of advertisement. Upon examining the jewelry, Will recognizes it’s Carl’s. Having been a good friend of the Cartwrights, he also realizes Ben’s lie and asks for the truth. Ben reveals the letter was from the authorities in Mexico declaring Carl’s death. Will couldn’t believe the news but expressed his will to bring Carl’s body back to their place.
Ben sends Adam because Will is too old to travel to Mexico to retrieve his son’s body. Upon his arrival, he immediately visits a local hotel to rent a room. When he asked the lady in charge regarding Carl Reagan, her welcoming approach turned bitter. She insists Adam ask Carl’s widow instead.
Adam introduces himself to Carl’s widow, Maria Reagan, as her husband’s old friend. However, she tells him off, thinking there’s nothing they could discuss, considering her husband is dead. Adam gets to speak with Maria again at a local bar. Although hesitant, Maria tells him that she thought the law officials informing Will about Carl would be the best. She tells him to go home, but Adam insists he’ll only leave after getting a few answers.
When Adam returned to his room, two men were waiting for his arrival to tell him that he was in the wrong town. After Adam refuses to leave, they knock him out. When he woke up, he asked El Jefe, the law enforcer in Plata, about the two men who ambushed him in his hotel room. However, El Jefe only told him that he should leave. Adam asked why and how Carl died. El Jefe reveals that he faced a murder charge, attempted to escape jail, smuggled guns, and even robbed mine shipments. Adam refuses to believe Carl was a murderer, still seeking the truth for Will’s peace.
Adam returns to the bar to talk to Maria again. Like him, Maria saw the good things in Carl, even if other people in town did not like him.
Meanwhile, it appears that one of the men who ambushed Adam, Pablo, was Maria’s brother. Pablo insists Maria tell him what he discussed with Adam at the bar. Maria tells him that he only talked about Carl and their marriage to tell Will about those things. The other men approachers her with a knife, causing her to scream loud enough for Adam to interfere. However, Maria insists they were her friends. Adam brings Pablo to El Jefe.
At El Jefe’s station, Pablo tells El Jefe that Adam was molesting his sister. Adam insists he didn’t know who he was referring to until they mentioned Maria’s name. When Adam returns to the hotel, the owner, Beulah, allows him to stay for another night. Beulah also stated that Maria’s like a daughter to her and that Carl Reagan was a thief and murderer. All of a sudden, a voice from the shadows spoke. There Carl was, alive and well. He threatens to kill Adam for knowing he’s still alive but agrees to talk for a while. Carl asks about his father. Adam tells him that Will’s nearly blind and dead inside because of him. Carl reveals that it’s better to declare himself dead than face his sentence. Carl also sent the two thugs who went after Adam. He allows Adam to return home only if he tells his father he died from a disease. Then, Carl reveals robbing a silver shipment before leaving Plata, Mexico.
Adam goes to El Jefe about Carl Reagan. As expected, he refuses to believe he’s alive. Adam tells El Jefe about Carl’s plan to rob the silver shipment. Although hesitant, he listens to Adam’s plan.
As Adam leaves El Jefe’s station, Maria approaches him, insisting he leaves the town. However, Adam insists on telling Carl’s father the truth about his son. Maria asks Adam to forget Carl, considering he was his old friend. Adam tells him to return to Virginia City, but she insists on staying and not leaving her husband.
El Jefe asks Gomez, his right hand, about Carl Reagan. Gomez reveals that considering his low wage, taking part in the silver shipment robbery sounded like a tempting offer. Gomez puts El Jefe locked in jail.
Meanwhile, Adam receives a letter from Maria. Sure enough, it was a trap to help Carl. Carl thinks Adam is trying to take Maria away from him. Maria stops Carl from killing Adam, threatening to tell El Jefe about the truth if he continues with his plan. After seeing his wife’s wavering loyalty, he asks Pablo to shoot her to prove his loyalty. Pablo fails to do as ordered, so Juan, the other thug, fires at Maria. Pablo manages to push her away, shooting Juan, who retaliates immediately. Adam grabs the gun from Pablo’s holster, firing at Carl. Before dying, he asks Adam to tell his father that he thought about him often.
El Jefe thanks Adam for his help, opening the town to other people like him. Adam leaves the place and bids his farewell to Maria and Beulah. He delivers the news to Will, who is happy to hear that Carl has settled down and had a loving wife.

think this senor i know it who sent you maria senor why don't you get yourself a good night's sleep huh and in the morning you'll feel fresh and rested for the travel no it's quite the other way around you're the one that's traveling out now senor you're a very stubborn man [Applause] one sleep well senor [Music] i am the law in plata if that is what you mean my name's adam cartwright i know what is your name i know that you came into this town alone i know that you're staying at the hotel i also know that you asked the same questions too many times well now if you know all that maybe you also know the name of the two men that were waiting for me in my hotel room and jump me huh that is something that i probably do not know [Applause] what do you intend to do about it senor we did not ask you to come to plata maybe it is better that you leave why should i leave it just got here perhaps you are stepping on a dead man's toes carl reagan was a friend of mine senor it is time that you should know this that you are a friend of carl reagan does not make you a friend of anybody in this town well now i didn't come to this town to make friends or enemies either one the man that you are seeking is dead but even his memory is hated here is that enough senor do you want to know more yes i'd like to know how he died the official record showed that he was killed while attempting to escape jail escape jail now why was he in jail for murder for 50 murders but only for one that i could prove [Applause] do you have a trial of um and he was sentenced to hang body tried to escape senor you ever see a man without a face my deputy commenced a double barrel shotgun at close range it was second best to hang him i can't believe carl was a murderer you're lying signo or else you do not know your gringo friend very well i'm not lying what reason would he have reason that one needed no reason he smuggled guns to renegade indians he robbed mind shipments he was a killer is that recent enough well now i only have your word for this your loyalty touches me senor my loyalty is to a dying old man who loved his son i weep for him i made carl's father a promise i came to this town to do something when i've done it i'll leave you leave a lot sooner than your cat right or you will remain without a protection of the law oh what's that supposed to mean what does that mean another gringo told me not long ago that he was in this town for peace and quiet to become one of us to learn our customs and there was not one day of peace and quiet from the time that senor regan appeared the road to our town goes two ways senor my advice is to go back to your own [Music] people [Music] hello maria i thought we had already said goodbye oh you said goodbye i didn't besides i having the answers to my questions [Music] could i change your mind about having that drink no thank you well maybe if you just sit with me paid to talk to customers that's part of my job and it's very strange finding you're working in a place like this why do you say that carl was a proud man somehow i just don't think he'd want his wife to work in a cantina what was he like when you knew him it was like a cult she could never break sometimes he was gentle even sentimentally man with the restlessness never stand still wanting me to go to mexico whether when we were kids you did not go no i put down roots on our ranch ponderosa my father's here my two brothers it's good to have a family yeah but the woman goes with her husband tell me maria was he as i remember him were you happy with him i married him that's not what i asked i do not know what you have heard some people did not like him you saw good things in him so did i that's the carl riggan i love [Applause] [Music] [Applause] it would have been better if you hadn't come here cowboy i've been told that before you're buying trouble well now since when did you start worrying about me i didn't like carl reagan but i do like maria she's a good kid and i don't want any harm to come to her well neither do i it's a little late for [Music] that what did he want he does not have to be a concern of ours but he is our concern you are told not to talk to him will you not be careful pablo you're hurting your sister if she is going to be a fool then she will be hurt now what did he say huh please pablo you're hurting me pablo is right little one it is a great concern to all of us tell us what the gringo said nothing he said nothing and i told him nothing now tell me little sister what did he want just wanted to talk about carlos how we how he was how we met about the marriage if we were happy he wanted to tell carlos father about those things that's all i swear you all right yes i'm all right why don't you leave us alone these are the two that laid me in my hotel room it was a mistake they are my friends your friends some friends from the way you were screaming take care of his arm he won't die we're gonna have a talk with el happy let's go [Applause] what is the meaning of you told me not to expect any help from the law so i'm taking care of it myself it's one of the men that jumped me in my room this is so pablo see happy it is all i'm only sorry i didn't kill this gringo pig all right that's right put away your gun or i will have to take it away this gringo this foreigner he was molesting my sister your sister i don't know what you're talking about it is true jeffy pablo came to me and told me this foreigner is spending much time with maria well i don't know whose sister she is i was just asking her questions about her husband i warn you cartwright we do not like you gringos interfering in our affairs all right pablo you can go what are you doing are you gonna arrest him for what for defending the honor of his sister my gun gringo maybe it is in your cart right we should be in the cell eh jeffy no no no no send your card cartwright he is an intelligent man he probably has enough intelligence to get out of mexico now if not the cell will still be there i didn't mean to startle you so you're still here yep still here but you can stop worrying about maria has anything happened to her oh no she's all right why shouldn't she be she hates gringos just as much as anyone else in this town oh i guess that means you're getting ready to leave this beautiful village of ours well i don't have much choice unless i sleep in the street you only let me have that room for one night you can keep the room for another night what made you change your mind maybe because that trail gang i told you about ain't coming in or uh maybe because of maria all right maybe it is because of maria that girl's like a daughter to me i ain't gonna cuss her out for the rest of my life just because she made a bad marriage well i don't know that that's true was it a bad marriage what did you expect you must have known carl reagan was rotten to the core why don't you tell me about it ain't nothing to tell carl reagan was a thief and a killer and he used to beat maria she said she loved him well don't try to understand that card right you couldn't unless you were a woman uh pablo is he uh is he really her brother yes he's her brother all right but he might as well not be he's scared just like everybody else in this town that's what carl reagan did to men pablo and uh juan what was their connection with carl go home cowboy this ain't no place for you get out while you still can i'm not gonna leave here until i find out the truth about carl now if you know it why don't you tell me why do you have to ask so many questions [Music] hello carl you recognized my voice didn't you i certainly did i never thought i'd hear it again well you wouldn't have adam but you just had to ask questions didn't you now i don't want to have to kill you but now that you know that i'm alive i guess i'm going to have to now you put your gun on that table nice and easy like come a thousand miles to find a man raised from the grave like lazarus that's good you always were the bride when weren't you a great adam cartwright you you get us a bottle now adam and i we haven't seen each other in years have we we got a lot to talk about sit down there how's my father adam nearly blind nearly dead inside over you and you can see how embarrassing it'd be if i let you go back and tell him i was still alive why'd you do it carl all this billow why don't you go to bed and keep your mouth shut i know when i'm well off see i had to adam they were gonna hang me but i thought it real clever of me you know have myself declared dead now don't you oh yeah but there was a man killed carl now who wasn't who'd they bury in your place oh now adam now you don't ask questions like that but i'll tell you he was a man about my size wore my clothes he was a friend too and i suppose it was you that sent those two thugs after me huh well i was sorry about that yeah you always was a peaceful man i thought that you'd think it out clear and uh leave well enough alone why didn't you well i suppose i had to find out about you for myself you know the law in this town doesn't have a very uh charitable opinion of you yeah el heffy he he wanted me so bad he could taste it well he's gonna taste it even more when he finds out you're alive yeah i guess so so i can't let him find out can i i stayed dead adam it won't last kyle if it isn't el jefe it'll be somebody else well you let me worry about that won't you and maria what about her we used to play a little game taking each other's girl you remember that sure i remember let me give you a little advice my friend you stay with my wife come on carl we're not kids anymore and i'm not playing games anymore what are you going to tell my father when you go back home i had assumed i wasn't going back i don't want to kill you adam now you'd listen to a proposition we i'd say under the circumstances i don't have very much choice do that's right i wouldn't do this for anybody but you but when you go home why don't you tell my father i died of the fever smallpox something like that you'll think of something beulah she knows you're alive pablo juan maria beulah she's afraid to talk she knows me that well pablo and juan they want money as bad as i do see there's a silver shipment going through here day after tomorrow i'm gonna take it you left out maria no i didn't leave her out she's in love with me i guess i really never knew you carl you are a mean one aren't you yeah and i'm gonna be a rich one after that silver shipment i'm i'm leaving plata there's other places to go new worlds to conquer dead man nobody looks for a dead man and if i don't take your proposition then i'd be the one without any choice wouldn't i and i want you to get a good night's rest and be on your way to virginia city by tomorrow night or or i'll kill you then you'll cut right i thought you would be gone by now no i have some information i think might interest you it's possible but i doubt it's probable you know i can tell you every move you make since you've been here well now if you can do that then you can probably tell me that i saw an old friend last night i was not aware that you had an old friend i saw carl reagan senor my pay is not the biggest pay my job is not the easiest it's too early in the morning for jokes it's no joke he's alive i tell you cal reagan is dead dead and apparently you didn't take a very good look at the man that was killed in your jail do you know the effect of a double barrel shotgun at close range i know the man i'm talking about i saw at close range it was carl reagan senor i do not know what it is that you are up to but i tell you again i don't like gringo tricks well now you gonna have a lot more than tricks to worry about there's a silver shipment coming through here the day after tomorrow reagan's planning to take it and get out of the country why don't you believe me why should i believe you one moment you are his friend and the next moment you are accusing him you wear two faces senor well if i do it's because i know two carl reagans when i first came the plot i was looking for an old friend and now well now i know what you told me about him was true i do not like to deal with liars senor i'm telling you the truth carl reagan's alive his death was just a trick if he is alive he threatened to kill me if i didn't leave town he meant it if i don't go he's to come looking for me the copper del plata miner is the lifeblood of this town well then we better do something about it perhaps i've missed george jose if you have a plan i will listen i have a plan when carl finds out i came here to see you he'll try to kill me you stay close to me keep me in sight i think maybe together we can handle it any man who believes that all men of one race are bad because one man of that race is bad this man is a fool [Applause] i will not let you out of my sight i won't feel any of the worse knowing that adam adam i thought you left down is that what carl told you so you know yes maria i know you must leave you must not stay here maria i came here to find something kind to say to a grieving old man now if you have something to tell me i'll listen adam carlos was your friend people change forget it maria can you forget him adam first he was like
